      Braking bumps are so bad I didn't do the actual drop because trying to stay in control on the braking bumps was more dangerous than the actual drop.

      Dry weather this year has caused the tracks to get really beat up. The breaking bumps are horrendous.

      Beginning section before the drop is super dry, needs a good rainstorm. But otherwise really fun.
